Soft Baby Bottoms need Norwex

Soft Baby Bottoms need Norwex

Soft, like a baby’s bottom”…  This saying only tells part of the story about babies’ skin.  Of course baby skin is soft — it is the best!!! — but it is also delicate, fragile and needs to be protected from chemicals in our environment.

Skin is a very important multifunctional organ that provides our bodies with a barrier function, mechanical protection, thermoregulation, immune surveillance and it prevents the loss of body fluids. Healthy skin plays a role in keeping babies alive. It was previously thought that the skin barrier function reached its maturity at about 34 weeks gestation (still in the womb). However, recent data shows that newborn skin goes through a gradual process of maturity in its environment and continues to develop until 12 months after birth —that is all the way until their first birthday!!! Skin care is important during a baby’s first years of life as studies show that baby’s (6-13 months old) and toddler’s (17-24 months old) skin has higher skin reactivity and absorption than adults.

The newborn’s skin is very naturally sensitive, thin and fragile. The skin of the premature newborn is even thinner, therefore highly permeable. This increases the risk of toxicity from the absorption of chemicals. This skin is also more easily attacked mechanically. For example, a baby’s bottom is in constant contact with diapers and being wiped with baby wipes which can cause repeated removal of top layer of skin cells. This increases the permeability of the skin and chance of skin rashes and infections.  The health of a newborn’s skin is so important to the overall health of the child.

Norwex’s Global Mission is to: “Improve quality of life by radically reducing chemicals in our homes.”  This mission does not only apply to how we care for our homes but how we care for our bodies.  The shelves at the supermarkets and drug stores are lined with chemical-filled baby products.  Even with the knowledge of cancer-causing agents, these can still be found in some of the most “trusted” companies baby products.  Isn’t it wonderful that Norwex provides alternative skin care products. Here are a few chemical-free products that will keep your babies clean and safe.

Baby Hooded Towel Set:  It is the perfect size for babies and toddlers; it is super absorbent, super soft and super cozy, just what their sensitive skin needs.  It is constructed with microfiber and has Norwex’s exclusive Baclock™ agent to inhibit odors from bacteria.  It also comes with a matching face cloth.

Chapped Skin’s All-Season Cure

Chapped Skin’s All-Season Cure

Alright my friends… here’s a product you shouldn’t live without!  Norwex’s Shea Butter is fabulous for severely dry skin including: hands, feet, elbows, cuticles, scalp, and lips.  It’s all natural and organic ingredients include Avocado Oil as well as Vitamin E.

Harsh environmental elements such as the sun, wind, heat and cold can dry your skin.  Norwex Shea Butter is your much needed moisturizer.  Your skin will feel nourished and be protected against the elements as it soaks up this incredible moisturizing product!

What I also think is fabulous, are the ingredients which are not found in the bottle.  The Ecocert-certified Organic Shea Butter is free from:

  • GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms)
  • Parabens
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Nanoparticles
  • Silicone
  • PEG (Polyethylene Glycol)
  • Synthetic perfumes and dyes
  • Animal-derived ingredients

Do you have a family member or friend with fly-away hair?  This product is also an excellent balm for taming dry or frizzy hair.

This product feels firm when removed from the jar, simply massage it into your hand to warm it up prior to use.

Did you know?

People have appreciated the healing properties of Shea Butter for centuries.  Its history can be traced back to ancient Egypt, where it was used to protect the hair and skin against the fierce effects of the sun and hot, dry desert winds.  It is derived from the nut of the Shea tree and melts at body temperature.

For those who are enduring cold weather for the entire winter (as many of us are), the cool temperatures and dry winter air are guaranteed to challenge our skin, leaving us with cracked hands and sore lips.  Not surprisingly our hands are one of the first parts of our bodies to show signs of aging.  You can combat the winter effects by soothing your hands with Shea Butter.  It’s a perfect year-round remedy!

**Allergy Alert:  Contains oil from the Shea Nut

Super Soft & Extra Gentle Baby Care

Super Soft & Extra Gentle Baby Care

Babies and kids have extra-soft skin and they deserve all of our extra loving care.  Norwex Microfiber cloths and towels are both super gentle and remarkably absorbent.

Many new moms have commented to me that they’ll swaddle their precious baby up in Norwex Hooded Towel after a bath, and by the time they are laying on the change table… they are totally dry!

Norwex Microfiber towels and cloths are quick-drying and embedded with the exclusive BacLock™ agent in the cloth that goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth!

I have three Microfiber recommendations for your child’s skin:

  • Newborns:  The Baby Hooded Towel Set comes with a face cloth in the package.
  • Young Children: The Kids Towel which is vibrant apple green in colour with a sunshine yellow trim.
  • All Ages:  The Baby Body Pack includes a set of three face / body cloths which are extra gentle on skin.  These cloths are excellent for wiping up after meals, bath time, craft time or snack time.
    • These cloths are an excellent replacement for using wipes which contain toxic chemicals.
    • These cloths are also excellent for cleaning babies gums.

Somehow during the past 20 years, wiping a baby’s bottom has turned into a ‘disposable wipe event’.  Years ago, all moms used only cloths and then they laundered them and reused them.  Today we see more diaper rashes, skin conditions and allergies than ever before. Our skin is our largest organ, it is constantly absorbing that which it contacts.  Let’s protect our little ones’ fresh, absorbent, and innocent skin by wiping it with only a cloth and water.  Think twice before you rub it down with something you wouldn’t drink.

Speaking of baby skin, let’s talk about the body washes and lotions available.  Norwex has shopped the world over for you.  Their products come from over 12 different countries.  Our Body Lotion, Shower Gel and Hand Cream are sourced from Germany.  These products are fantastic and will work amazing on your babies and yourself.

Who doesn’t want to fight the signs of aging?

Norwex has taken skin care to the next level with an exciting breakthrough which focuses on the natural, rejuvenating benefits of a rare apple.

The Swiss apple, Uttwiler Spätlauber, is descendant of a seedling planted in the middle of the 18th century. It is well-recognized for its ability to be stored for long periods without shriveling, exemplifying its longevity virtue.  Rich in phytonutrients and proteins, the apple’s unique ingredients are incorporated into the Naturally Timeless skin care line which offers:

  • Firming Face Serum contains Apple Stem Cells, Multi Peptides and Sea Algae to visibly firm and smooth your skin.
  • Radiant Eye Cream contains an extract from a Persian Silk Tree to reduce signs of dark circles, fine lines and under eye puffiness.  Includes Apple Stem Cells, Multi-peptides and plant based moisturizers to help re-hydrate the delicate tissues around your eyes.

This unique offering is currently one of the most pioneering and innovative breakthroughs in skin care development across the globe.

Aside from providing remarkable results, knowing that the products I am applying to my body daily are natural and not laden with ingredients linked to potential health concerns leaves me feeling good both inside and out.  Norwex is one of the few North American companies certified by Ecocert; a company that began in France who sets high standards for natural and organic cosmetic products made in Europe.  They set the benchmark for all to achieve, assuring that the products they approve are being made from renewable resources using environmentally friendly manufacturing methods. Check out Norwex’s other body care certifications here!

Prior to discovering Norwex, many of the products I was using contained “the Dirty Dozen” (learn more about that here!)  However, some products are better than others. To see what’s in your daily skin-care routine, click here.
